I'm no expert, but it was released in 1927 and, therefore, should be in public domain.

A remake: how interesting.

Unfortunately 1927 is not far enough back to be automatically in the public domain.

Cornell has a good chart on how to tell if a work is PD, Copyright Term and the Public Domain in the United States.
